These Two “Look at the Book” Videos from John Piper Are a Great Investment of Your Time

If you haven’t yet checked out John Piper’s amazing LABS (Look at the Book), I encourage you to do so. Here are two that I watched in the past few days and think are terrific:

The Righteous Are Not the Perfect: Piper talks about the difference between the righteous and the wicked, in Psalm 1 and the rest of the psalms. This is really insightful.

Do Not Be Anxious About Anything: A friend had texted me that he is going through a very tough time. So I thought of Philippians 4:6-7, and hoped John Piper had done a LAB on that passage. Sure enough, I found he has. When I watched it to see if I thought it would help this brother, I realized that it helped me as I too am in a tough time. I shared it with my wife Nanci who is battling cancer—after 43 years of marriage, she is my sweetheart, and I am with her step by step in this journey. If you’re facing challenging times, I hope you watch this. I’m not sure you could find a better way to invest 10 minutes of your life.

May you walk with King Jesus daily, remembering He says to you, “Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah 49:16).
